Tencent's rise of social advertising
The so-called social advertising system has two main points, one is the number of users, the other is data.

At the data level, Tencent is the departmentAPPand partners have contributed to Tencent's system6Big data modules, including underlying attributes, user status, media environment, interests, user behavior, and user environment. And Tencent social advertising is constantly improving the data targeting mechanism: to the status of marriage and love orientation, for example, the recent Tencent social advertising and Youtu team cooperation, can be more accurately directed to parenting, newly married people. In addition, Tencent launched Tencent this yearDMP(data management platform), while Tencent's social advertisingADX+DMP"Combined mode service brand.
The number of users and data, Tencent has basically no worries, the key question is how to cash out. Previously, Tencent's traffic in advertising is relatively single, this situation began to change in the past two years.
This.5In June, in order to promote the better development of Tencent's advertising business and platform ecology, Tencent made a restructuring of its advertising business, and Guangtong merged with WeChat's advertising department to set up a "Social and Performance Advertising Department". The move, now looking back, may have played a more systematic role in Tencent's traffic realization in social advertising.

Although the plate is still relatively small, but the growth of nearly tripled, the performance advertising growth is indeed remarkable, Tencent's second-quarter earnings report the most prominent growth of the business.
Data becomes critical
In digital marketing, data is gold. Tencent's data, around the core is Tencent's most important social platforms, WeChat,QQ、QQspace, and Tencent videos,QQMusic and other media. At this stage, simple ad delivery can no longer meet the needs of advertisers, and the above-mentioned product case, this is not just a single ad delivery.
Only the product will be expected at present80%Sales come from the mobile side. Its main is the special sale mode, so that only the product will80%The members are women, this part of women as brand control and quality control, re-purchase rate is super70%, contributed nearly to the materialism club90%sales. Advertising in WeChat's circle of friends, only products will look for is20To.35Women, these female users are characterized by the pursuit of quality, but also hope for relatively cheap prices.
Only through a wide range of network to reach all kinds of user groups, combined with WeChat and the circle of friends to make promotional needs and audience users between the precise information reach. Of these,Tencent.DMPTwo tools are provided: First, intelligent recommendation algorithms, through the user's behavioral data (ad clicks, e-commerce behavior,appBehavior, etc.) and attribute data (gender, age, region, education, occupation, etc.) filter users, and the other is to precisely target users through a variety of latitude orientations such as user environment, behavior, user attributes, and long-term hobbies.Combined with the demand for materialism, after Tencent's big data layer stripping, only the product will eventually run ads in front of the users it needs.
In the process, Tencent's big data has played a key role. Tencent launched this yearDMPSince then, data cooperation, data opening has become its most important core, Tencent will be used for internal capabilities open to partners, but also through partner data to improve their own data system.

And the interaction of the circle of friends makes76%The user's willingness to travel has significantly affected the user's travel choices;More than three-quarters of people actually come from their next destinationQQThe influence of space and circle of friends. Friends forward the experience of sharing, all the time permeated the user's side, affecting your behavior, decision-making. Among them, the data is no longer cold, more with real behavior and the human analysis behind the numbers combined.
Whether it's fan economics, social marketing, or brand advertising, digital marketing as a whole is at an inflection point. These marketings are no longer just about wondering how content explodes on social media, and keywords such as data and precision have become just as important. Because this involves not only the precise delivery of social advertising, but also the balance between advertising and the user experience.
